While we have known Disney+’s upcoming Marvel Studios project Moon Knight will premiere on March 30, 2022, the streaming service has not always been upfront with how many episodes any given Marvel show will drop on its premiere date. Hawkeye famously started with two episodes ahead of The Book of Boba Fett‘s release, but it looks like we might finally have gotten an answer on their next release.
Disney has recently revealed that Moon Knight will have a one-episode premiere. The series is set to have six episodes total, meaning that new episodes of the Oscar Isaac led MCU installment should release on Wednesdays from March 30 until May 4. Disney+ is apparently dodging the two-episode premiere strategy it used for WandaVision and Hawkeye. This also places the Moon Knight finale only a couple of days before Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness theatrical release.
Moon Knight follows Steven Grant, who discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector. The series will revolve around Spector’s titular costumed alter ago and his relationships to various Egyptian gods. Kevin Feige has stated that the series will be a “tonal shift” from other MCU entries and will keep much of the violence and brutality from the comics.
